The Tradition of the Pet Blessing

This past Saturday, Doggie Cakes had the opportunity to attend a pet blessing at the Unity Truth Center.  I have never been to one and found the experience to be interesting. (Jason has attended several). I began to wonder where this tradition began. To the internet I went for some research….   It seems that the tradition grew out of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  I could not find a date for when the first one might have occurred. They    are normally held in October. This celebration evolved into honoring our beloved animal companions.  St. Francis is the patron...

There are over 175 breeds of chicken.  I think they are beautiful, so take a minute and admire some of this photos I took of some inspiring hens and rosters. ...

Book Review of “Rescuing Sprite” by Mark R. Levin

At the beginning of  the summer I had selected a few books to read.  I have only finished one, so far.  Rescuing Sprite, A Dog Lover’s Story of Joy and Anguish, by Mark R. Levin.  I know that this was going to be a sad story, however I did not know what would soon happen in my life after I began reading it. After a few characters in, our family lost are beautiful Luna after 15 years.  So, I like the author was grieving.  Every time I pick it up to read I had to put it down knowing that the ending was to close to my own...

Make your Own Doggie Peanut Butter

For the last few years Doggie Cakes has been making its own peanut butter to bake into our treats.  I wanted there to be not extra added salts, sugars and all things we can’t pronounce.  The taste is scrumptious, you might never buy peanut butter again.
